MOVE Music Festival - April 27, 2013 in Albany New York

From a media release:

Industry Veteran Bob Tulipan To Give Keynote Speech
MOVE Music Festival on Saturday, April 27, 2013
in Albany - New York

(Albany, NY) --
Get ready music lovers!   Albany ranks as the nation’s 9th largest breeding ground for new music and is the location for this year’s MOVE Festival for the second year running.  For those that couldn't afford the price of a ticket to Austin last month, MOVE Music Festival is the alternative.  Move is an indie music festival that premiered last spring and is completely focused on spotlighting diverse and emerging talent, much akin to the early days of SXSW.  It takes place on Saturday, April 27.

“The idea behind Move is to giving regional bands a chance to launch their careers in the independent music scene,” comments festival owner and founder Bernie Walters.  The festival is the perfect platform for these bands to gain experience in performing live to a local audience as well as to industry insiders,” he continues.

Move will host a roundtable panel discussion featuring an impressive list of experts as well as a keynote speech from industry veteran Bob Tulipan. Bob's career spans virtually every facet of the music business from promotions to management.  He's worked with acts like The Rolling Stones, The Police, Patti Smith and Public Image Ltd and assisted with concerts and festivals such as Woodstock '94 and '99, Live Aid, Warped Tours and Lollapalooza.  He currently represents UK band Strangefruit and regularly lends his expert opinion on to print and broadcast media around the world.



Virtually every aspect of the industry will be represented at the roundtable. In addition, Benji Rogers, co-founder of Pledge Music, Lou Plaia, co-founder of Reverb Nation, Allie Crystal of Universal Music Publishing and legendary drummer Jerry Marotta will be in attendance.  For more information on attending industry, visit http://movemusicfest.com/bios/.

SXSW grew from 700 attendees in 1987 to over 300,000 in 2012 and even beyond that this year. In the same way that SXSW started out as an organic stage for showcasing and promoting indie music and film, and encouraging progressive dialogue within those industries, MOVE is attempting to do the same.
General admission wristbands cost $15 plus shipping and handling. Check out the Pledge Drive where you can pledge for early access & discounted packages to MOVE 2013!

Review: Night of the Kings / La Nuit des Rois by Philippe Lacôte

Review: 
Night of the Kings
La Nuit des Rois
by Philippe LacôteA France, Côte d'Ivoire, Canada and Senegal co-productionNow Playing In The New York Film FestivalImageAfter Venice and the Toronto Film Festival, Philippe Lacôte's Night of the Kings has moved on to conquer New York City. A young pickpocket (Koné Bakary), is incarcerated in the giant La MACA prison, the largest in Côte d’Ivoire. The prison offers a hostile atmosphere, where the guards have long given up keeping order and the prisoners run the show, albeit confined within the prison walls. They dance, sing, and mingle at will in a common area called The Jungle. There is a violent power struggle between Lord Blackbeard (Steve Tientcheu), who runs things, and the younger leaders of other factions. Blackbeard is old and infirm, and he knows he can't hold on forever. But, he does want to hold on long enough to leave on his own terms. Blackbeard designates the newcomer as the new storyteller - the griot - called Roma…

Blues/Rock: The Cole Patenaude Band - Are You Happy Now? (Independent / 24 July 2020)

Blues/Rock:
The Cole Patenaude Band - Are You Happy Now?
(Independent / 24 July 2020) Buy the CD Big vocals and infectious grooves make up this release from The Cole Patenaude Band. It's modern blues with a classic sensibility, anchored by solid musicianship and upbeat songwriting. 
Keyboard player Dean Thiessen and Patenaude on guitar trade off solos and melodic lines to keep it interesting through a range of bluesy style, incorporating rock and country, with a pop song sheen on songs like For the Money. Would You Be Mine is more Elvis-esque rockabilly, while How To Love is an acoustic song with folky storytelling lyrics and feel. 
Compromise is a standout track, with a snarly guitar line and a churchy organ swelling underneath a nice bluesy beat. Horns aren't credited in the notes, but I swear I heard some on this and a couple of the other tracks. 
As a husband, father, and full-time mechanic based in Langley, British Columbia, finding the time to make his music was a challenge…
